Hamden Police are investigating whether a robbery of a Pizza delivery driver on Wednesday is related to a similar incident on Thursday.
On Wednesday, a driver from Legend Pizza was making a delivery on Fourth Street around 8:30 p.m. when she was distracted by a female in her early teens with braided hair, according to police.
The driver was then surrounded by four teen-aged males, one with a knife, who stole two cell phones and money from her.
The following night, a Chinese food delivery driver was on North Street around 9:15 p.m. when he was warned by a person that there was a group of suspicious males walking around. The person was aware of the robbery of the delivery driver a few streets over on Wednesday, according to police.
The driver drove off, but as he pulled up to a stop sign, three males tried to force their way into his car, police said. The driver sped away before anything was taken.
Police are trying to determine if the two incidents are connected.
Anyone with information is asked to contact Detective Joseph Liguori of the Hamden Police Department Detective Division at (203) 230-4040.
